In 2017, a successful businessman travels to the ends of the earth to find that the perfect woman is always under his nose. He hires a sexy renegade tracker to find an exact duplicate of his android wife.
A cyborg is programmed to kill a scientist who holds the fate of mankind in his hands. He fails and hides in a diner in a desert run by a woman who likes him. The people who sent him are after him and so is the local arm wrestling champ.

The male airport announcer's voice from the movie Airplane! (1980) can be heard making an announcement in the background about the recycling zone just as Bill meets Sam. See more »
"E" Johnson drives a classic "64 & 1/2" Mustang, until the car is picked up by the magnet when it magically turns into a less classic "66" Mustang. Then it's back to a "64 & 1/2" when it's brought to Lester's "Sky Ranch" See more »
You got to face it Sam, this is 2017. Even the best tracker couldn't find a Cherry in these parts.
Well, what am I going to do, Slim? It's a Cherry or nothing!

Urbanite hires crusty lady tracker to find sexy robot
This is the kind of film that gets under your skin. One of a small subgenre of Sci-Fi Westerns, its small flashes of inspired writing make it worth watching some night when there's nothing else to do. Cameron Milzer is particularly notable as a blackly comedic psycho-girlfriend, but Tim Thomerson and Melanie Griffith are no slouches themselves. Pleasant bleak visuals and an interesting score from Basil Poledouris (Robocop, Hunt For Red October, & the Conan films, as well as 60 other movies) make for a modest repeat viewability factor. Fun and stupid!
